That roof is so perfect with the slope of the trunk and the shape of the fins. It is a radical yet restrained custom and gorgeous in all respects. It would be fun to read Mark Gustavson's Custom Clinic comments regarding your model.

Gorgeous and a true engineering masterpiece.  

Would have loved to have seen WIP photos of the body work.

Great colour btw.  This should be turned into a commercial kit!

@showrods

When I bought a new computer and had the pics moved, I lost some pics in the process.

I have a few here, but none of the body work in progress.

I included pics of the Chrome pieces back from the plater.

You can see where the side spears were removed and the front fender well chrome and the rear fender chrome moldings were removed and backed up with sheet plastic for replacing the pieces.

In the front view you can see a sheet of plastic that was added to keep the fenders level with each other, and be the beginning of the radiator support brace.

That is gorgeous!  That Chezoom lid is perfection on the Caddy’s curvaceous body . . . and the color. Not enough superlatives to compliment everything. Just, wow!

Agreed. A w e s o m e !!!

@Peter Lombardo

My old friend from more than a dozen years ago.

Different screen name, but I'm back.

Do you still post projects. I have missed seeing your work. 

You were one of my favorite builders many, many years ago.
